Welcome to St. Joseph Regional Medical Center. You and your loved ones are important to us. On behalf of the entire St. Joseph team, thank you for the privilege of caring for you.
We are dedicated to providing excellent care in a safe, patient and family centered environment. We offer many services for both patients and visitors to help ensure your visit is as comfortable as possible. Below are links and helpful information:
admitting & scheduling
Upon entering the Medical Center, a nonemergency patient will be admitted to the hospital at patient registration, which is located near the north entrance on the first floor. To be admitted, both medical history and personal information about the patient will be confidentially recorded for the use of the medical staff only. Patients also must sign a document acknowledging informed consent regarding procedures for their care.
what to bring
Patients should bring appropriate insurance forms or identification cards at the time of admission. Patients also should bring a few toiletry and personal items. Newborn babies will also need clothing and a car seat for their trip home. The medical center will provide all other necessary articles for your care. We encourage you to only bring minimal personal belongings with you.
visiting hours and information
We recognize the important role family and loves ones play in the healing process and we encourage visitors to come when it is best for their loved one.
The hospital is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. For the safety of patients and employees, public entry, exterior doors (except the north lobby) at St. Joseph are locked from 8:30 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. During this time, all visitors must enter and exit the building through the north lobby emergency department entrance.

spiritual care/ chapel
The chapel is located on the second floor, near the cafeteria and just past our chaplains' offices. Patients and families are welcome to visit at any time.
A bi-weekly prayer service is held on the second and fourth Thursday at 12:30 p.m. There is Eucharistic Liturgy every first Thursday of each month. Everyone is invited.
Outside the chapel is a "Prayer Board" with prayers for those in need. They are remembered in our prayers and ministry. We invite you to write your prayer request on a card. The hospital respects patient confidentiality. Please ask permission before you write the patient's name on a card.
Members of our pastoral care team provide spiritual and emotional support to patients and families regardless of religious affiliation. Our chaplains stop by for a visit and provide a compassionate, supportive and caring pastoral presence as they listen attentively to a patient's or family member's concerns, fears and questions.
